Former Gamblers coaches capture second Stanley Cup

It was deja vu all over again for former Green Bay Gamblers head coach Jon Cooper and host of others formerly involved with the organization.


The Tampa Bay Lightning won their second straight Stanley Cup on Wednesday with a 1-0 win over the Montreal Canadiens. Cooper and assistant coach Derek Lalonde both took turns leading the Green Bay Gamblers and both won championships for the organization. John Burkhart (scout) and Brian Garlock (video coach) are also on the Lightning staff.


Former Wisconsin Badger Ryan McDonagh will also see his name etched on the Stanley Cup, picking up three points in the five-game series for the Lightning. One of those points was the assist on the eventual game-winning goal in the cup-clinching fifth game. Another former Badger, Cole Caulfield, came up on the losing end of the series as a member of the Canadiens. Joining the team after the Badgers bowed out in the NCAA Tournament, Caulfield also registered three points in the series with a trio of assists.
